Know The Facts About Engine Oils

I continue to be amazed how little most people know and understand motor oils that provide lubrication to vehicles they drive and/or use with other equipment.  Most rely on what they learn from others or through advertising  seen on TV or in a magazine.  BUT that does not provide the background and information necessary to give positive results.  Most car manufacturers stipulate that petroleum oils should be changed at certain intervals.  But Why?? When one lives in cold climates pour point should be the important factor.  When one lives where temperatures become very hot then a NOACK Volatility test would be important.  And what about wear on engine parts, then the Four-Ball Wear Test should be studied. All of these test results can be found in AMSOIL’s Comparative Motor Oil Study conducted using well known brands on the market today.  Oils used in this study were the following:  AMSOIL Synthetic, Castrol GTX, Chevron Supreme, Shell Formula, Valvoline SynPower, Mobil1 Extended Performance, Motorcraft Synthetic Blend, Kendall GT-1 High Performance, Pennzoil Platinum, Quaker State Horse Power and Trop Arctic Synthetic Blend.  Just because you can purchase a product off the shelf at Wal-Mart or your favorite parts store and they offer oil change and filter for $16.95 or thereabouts does not mean you are getting the best.  You could be getting something that will cost you more money in the long run.  Remember all petroleum manufacturing companies have various grade oils thus cheaper pricing.   So do yourself a favor, read and understand what gives the parts in your engine the best performance.
